CAR TURNED INTO MOTORCYCLE DRIVER’S LANE – ATTORNEY MN
The DailyMail.Com recently reported this story. A Minnesota grandfather had to undergo facial reconstruction surgery after a horrifying accident broke nearly every bone in his face. He was driving his motorcycle along Route 169 near Mankato – 80 miles south of Minneapolis. Suddenly, a pickup truck turned into his lane.He had no time to avoid a crash. Of course, he was lucky not to have been killed in the motorcycle accident. He was immediately airlifted to the Mayo Clinic. Doctors at Mayo discovered he had devastating injuries to his entire face.
The motorcycle rider was wearing a helmet.Even so, he suffered disastrous injuries, including to his aorta, neck, legs, arms, and face.In fact, every bone in his face was broken.The aorta and neck injuries – which were the most severe – were addressed first. Then, he underwent imaging and CT scans of his face. He will require multiple surgeries and significant physical therapy. It will be years before he is fully recovered, if ever. The medical bills will be enormous.
